Report: Warner Bros. Cancels Remainder of TDKR International Press Tour

Having quickly scuttled today’s scheduled Paris press conference and evening red carpet premiere for The Dark Knight Rises, Warner Bros. appears to have now also wisely decided to end all remaining international press activities associated with the summer blockbuster.

According to a report in the LA Times by Nicole Sperling, which the studio did not confirm, the decision will affect two other major international capitals:

The Burbank studio has scrapped its premieres and press junkets in Mexico City and Tokyo, which were scheduled for next week.

Warner Bros. is to be commended for its handling of today’s many difficult challenges. From the international full stop to the announcement a littler earlier this afternoon that the studio will refrain from sharing TDKR box office numbers over the weekend, the studio has acted swiftly and respectfully.
